HC Deb 23 February 1994 vol 238 c220W
Mr. Nicholas Brown

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence when he expects to commence the project definition phase for the replacement of the Invincible class aircraft carriers; and when these replacements will come into service.

Mr. Aitken

Under current plans, the Royal Navy's Invincible class aircraft carriers will continue in service well into the next century. Although concept studies for a replacement have commenced, project definition work is unlikely to begin before the end of the decade.
